Two Anti-marriage Bills Introduced in Congress

HRC Back Story
May 22, 2009
Two bills aimed at thwarting marriage rights for same-sex couples were introduced in the U.S. House yesterday. One, H.J.Res.54 is a resolution that formally “disapproves” of the elected DC council and Mayor’s decision to recognize marriages of same-sex couples performed in other jurisdictions. Introduced by Rep. Paul Broun of Georgia, the resolution is the first step if Congress tries to use its formal role in overruling the District’s local affairs. [link]
